An international passenger is arriving at JFK to transit to another domestic airport. The passenger will need to clear customs (with their baggage). Once baggage is in PAX custody, I assume that checking in said bags is required for the domestic flight. Once the bags are checked-in for the domestic flight:
Should the passenger expect and plan to undergo TSA inspection for the domestic flight?
Is there any instance where this would not happen (i.e. all activities in first paragraph occur in the 'sterile area' of airport?
If you have actually performed this exercise, please state this in your response.
An international arrival followed by a transfer does not always imply a terminal change. This question is different from At JFK, can you move between terminals airside on domestic flights? because it is possible to arrive and transfer within the SAME terminal. For example, arrive at JFK T5 on Jetblue from an international flight and transfer within the same terminal to another Jetblue domestic flight. As phoog has pointed out, the question the question is more complicated in that it is comprises international complications, not merely a domestic flight.
